Agriturismo with views of the Etna
Two young brothers converted the farm of their grandfather into a modern agriturismo to allow guests to enjoy the Sicilian countryside. The agricultural activities are continued, but the animals are located at some distance from the guest rooms. Upon request, they will be happy to give a tour of the farm. Of course the meat and vegetables are used in their own restaurant, prodotti a km zero they call it in Italy.
Beautiful view of the Etna
The agriturismo enjoys a quiet location in the island's inner land, about 45 minutes from the city of Catania. Unfortunately, it was a little cloudy when I visited the agriturismo, but there is a nice view of the hills, the cornfields and the surrounding mountains. In the distance even the volcano Etna can be seen.
The Etna is just over an hour's drive from the agriturismo. From Rifugio Sapienza you can take the lift to get further up the mountain. Personally, I recommend a guide to visit the Etna because he knows they way, after all it is still an active volcano, and organizes interesting, affordable day trips. More information can be obtained from the reception of the agriturismo.
Restaurant and swimming pool
The agriturismo features a beautifully landscaped garden with a panoramic swimming pool. There is a ping pong table in the garden and there is a playground. The agriturismo has its own restaurant which also serves breakfast. When I was there I tasted delicious homemade shortbread cookies with pistachios! The pistachio they use in many of their dishes because they are near the Bronte region, famous for the good quality of its pistachio nuts. The dishes are mostly organic and prepared with seasonal homegrown produce.
There is a nice, authentic village less than 1 km from the agriturismo. There are some bars, restaurants and shops to be found. Life is typical sicilian since there are not many tourists. Nearby the agriturismo is also a small lake with a nice climbing park for the children. This lake also serves to irrigate the surrounding fields and at the end of the summer it is also virtually empty. A 30-minute drive from the agriturismo is an Outlet Village, great for Italian fashion fans.
The agriturismo has 12 modernly decorated and comfortable rooms in a modern building. Each room has a small private balcony. At the back of the building, overlooking the garden, there are 6 double rooms. At the front, overlooking the mountains and in the distance the Etna, there are 6 family rooms, for 3 or 4 people. All rooms have private bathrooms and are equipped with minibar, air conditioning, satellite TV, safe and hairdryer.
This agriturismo allows you enjoy nature, Sicilian cuisine, authentic countryside life and fantastic views of Mount Etna.
